Jihadi “John” is identified as Emwazi. Close friend:

I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John. He was like a brother to me. . . . I am sure it is him.

Asim Qureshi, research director at the rights group, CAGE:

There was an extremely strong resemblance. This is making me feel fairly certain that this is the same person.

The Washington Post reports no comment from U.S. officials. Emwazi’s family decline a request for an interview, citing legal advice.
